The Curve of Sitefinity 4.0


Working with Sitefinity 4.0 CMS has been a challenge & a great learning experience. The learning has mostly revolved around how the CMS works & figuring out how to meet the client’s requests without modifying the CMS itself. Therein lies the challenge.

While using this system, I have faced many difficulties in attaining the desired goals including but not limited to: adding multiple tags to the head section through the page title screen, and adding a custom user control through the user interface. Documentation on how to help yourself is limited by Sitefinity. There are a lot of default settings in place that are not modifiable by the user or developer.

So, where do we go from here? I have successfully deciphered their “help” for the user controls, you can find step-by-step instructions here – more details coming soon. As for adding multiple meta, script or css tags to the header: there is no solution as of yet. Currently there is a character count limit of 255 characters. You can view the Sitefinity Discussion thread here. If you are also experiencing issues in this area, please check back for a solution at a later date. I am still working on it.
